SHACKLETON NEWS ARCHIVE
A PERSONAL SUMMARY OF SIR ERNEST'S LIFE AND ACHIEVEMENTS
Shackleton has, not surprisingly, made his way onto the 'My hero' website, which offers enthusiasts a chance to present a personal view of those they especially admire for their exploits and achievements.
Betty Bailey has produced and attractively written overview of Shackleton's life, which makes a thoroughly enjoyable read, full of nicely chosen detail.
There are a few errors, for example of chronology at one point, but they do not and need not detract from the general agreability of the writing and the author's evident enthusiasm for her subject shines through.
